Wait, are you insinuating that this is not how other people live???
Historically and to this day, people who have their every need tended to, they then want to look good and attractive and find hot mates to mate with. Sure, a few will tend towards sloth and fat, but that’s the exception. From the French courts to today’s trust-fund kids, when people have no cares in the world, they focus on themselves.

Just pull the pin on the grenade, toss it in, and watch the festivities that ensue.

Controversial Disney Opinions:

* Elsa is the antagonist in Frozen. Her lack of empathy makes her a terrible leader. She should've abdicated in favor of Anna at the conclusion of the movie.

Elsa was originally supposed to be the villain, then the song happened and everything went into rewrite with some of the animation already complete. At least that’s the story I heard.
 
"Up" and "Wall-E" are both a plot mess, but held on a pedestal because the first 20 minutes of each is fantastic and people somehow buy into the pile of crap that follows.

"Up": the opening scene is a classic for good reason, and the floating house was a wonderful sequence. But once the house lands (ending the first act way too soon) the central conflict is just how to move the house one last mile. Big deal. So they threw in the talking dog for cheap laughs, and then it turns out Carl's childhood idol (the adventurer Muntz) is actually a bad person. Oooh, a surprise villain -- what a twist! :-/

"Wall-E": the dialogue-free opening was amazing. The early stuff with just the robots on the spaceship was great. But... the movie makes a terrible and incorrect statement about human nature: that we all just want to lie around, fat and lazy. Au contraire! If the future were plentiful and no one ever needed to work, that spaceship would look like Logan's Run, not My 600-Lb Life. People wouldn't be melting into their seats. They would be playing tennis all day and fucking all night. And maybe not even playing tennis.

I've said what I needed to say.
I buy more into WALL-E's politics than you, but I have always thought the video gamey 'insert shoe, push button' last act scramble was a disappointingly banal ending to such a clever beginning. Total agreement on Up though. Outside the first 20 and the last 5, that movie is an absolute pile of poop that makes Cars look brilliant.

Is it still controversial to say Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time? I’m at the Bucs vs Giants game right now and watching him live just further convinces me that it’s true, there’s no doubt about it anymore
